German-Israeli Literature Festival 2019

The challenge we are facing from right-wing populists has long since become a worldwide phenomenon – even in Germany and Israel the voices of populists are growing louder and louder. How did this happen? And what is being done about it? "Louder, ever Louder" is the motto of the German-Israeli Literature Festival on September 4th  and 8th, 2019 in Berlin.

Conference Startklar?!

What will education and professional development be like in the future? How will digital networking and technical progress influence our learning processes and the methods we use to teach foreign languages? What challenges and openings might arise in this context? Put simply, how can we develop future-proof opportunities for teaching and learning languages, and what do they need to offer?

Goethe-Institut Damascus in Exile Goethe-Institut e.V.

Damaskus im Exil

The Goethe-Institut Damascus, established in 1955, was one of the first institutes worldwide. It closed in 2012 due to the security situation. Many people were forced to leave the country and are now in exile in Europe. To send a clear signal, the Goethe-Institut created a symbolic place for cultural encounters in Berlin, the Goethe-Institut Damascus | In Exile.
